2 project Awards as well as Bathroom Designer of the Year SA

Renovated Bathroom $30,000 – $45,000 – Winner: Brilliant SA

The transformation of a 1920s Henley Beach bungalow’s aging bathroom was designed by Jordan Smith and expertly built by supervisor David Lamond and the Brilliant SA team.
A key focus for this project was to make the most of the small room without compromising on function and style. Concealed storage and fixtures along with a clever use of materials have been combined in a functional and attractive space that meets the client’s requirements for a simple but stylish room that has a feeling of calmness and is easy to maintain. The final result projects a feeling of modern elegance and understated luxury.
The project was meticulously detailed and finished and is visually stunning.

Renovated Bathroom $45,000 – $55,000 – Winner:  Brilliant SA

A stylish, practical en-suite created as part of extensive renovations to a Flagstaff Hill home was recognised for excellence in this category. The room was designed by Steve Mahlo and once again the construction was supervised by David Lamond.

The existing space was generous but imbalanced and poorly laid out. the room was reconfigured to make the most of the features of the room. A bulky spa bath made room for an elegant freestanding bath and floor mounted spout.

Mirrored shaving cabinets with internal power points are recessed into wall above the generous vanity unit, while a recessed niche caters for shower shelving.

Vertically laid white gloss wall tiles give the illusion of extra height, while darker feature tiles laid horizontally in the shower provide contrast and balance.

Lighting is LED was used throughout with  wall mounted task lighting above the mirrors.

The finished brilliance has now created a haven for the parents of this family to retreat to, close the door and relax to gain the “me” time they both deserve.

The overall quality of the project has impressed the judges of all of Australia’s peak industry associations. In addition to this HIA Award, the (overall) project won MBA building Excellence Awards for Renovation/Addition under $200,000. Steve’s design was also Highly Commended in KBDi 2013 Design Awards (Large Bathroom).

South Australian Bathroom Designer of the Year – Winner: Janine Izzo for Brilliant SA

Janine’s design of the bathroom in this 1934 Bungalow is nothing short of stunning and has received accolades from across Australia and overseas.

“The client expressed a desire for a contemporary style in the bathroom and was willing to disregard the existing period style of the home to achieve this aim.We wanted to experiment with finishes that were not commonly used within the South Australian market and we wanted to showcase our abilities and willingness to look beyond the humble tile and off – shelf product and really design a creation that excites the senses.” Janine said

With a long list of features and unique elements, we will touch on some key points:

Staron solid surface for the wall and floor application as well as a custom formed vanity.
Caesarstone Concetto, Grey Agate as a backdrop for the vanity and pan with RGB LED used to backlight the stone and change the mood and look of the room.

LED feature lighting and task lighting throughout with the addition of a ceiling pendant light. Natural lighting is obtained from a full height window and ceiling skylight. The concealed exhaust fans have automated switching. Floor heating and a heated towel ladder ensure the room and towels stay dry and warm.

The large mirrored cabinet takes care of all the storage needs and conceals electrical outlets and controls.

Luxury fittings and appliances throughout this project are sleek and, where possible, concealed. The end result is a breathtaking room with harmonious balance.

Janine previously won the KBDi Design Awards 2013 “Best  Design – Small Bathroom (SA)” for this bathroom design.

These awards underpin Brilliant’s 2012 success, which saw the company take out the HIA Best Renovated Bathroom $30,000 – $45,000 and Janine taking the triple crown of KBDi  “Best Design Small Bathroom”, “Best Design- Large Bathroom” and “Bathroom Designer of the Year” (SA).
